Know Your Dodge Vehicle Drivetrain Options

Have you been wondering whether you should buy a vehicle that is all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive? The truth is that some people may not even give the drivetrain much of a thought when shopping for a new vehicle at their local Egg Harbor Township, NJ Dodge dealership. However, you will find that there can be a world of difference when it comes to power and handling between the two drivetrain options. At Sport Dodge RAM, we will always be happy to help you make the smartest buying decision.

Front-Wheel Drive (FWD)

A front-wheel drive drivetrain is just as the name suggests, where all of the engine’s power is sent off to the front of the vehicle to power the front wheels. The drivetrain is what pulls the vehicle down the road. With this option, such as you would find in a 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan, you can expect improved traction, predictability and stability during adverse weather conditions.

All-Wheel Drive (AWD)

In an all-wheel drive vehicle, you have a system that is more complex than a front wheel or rear wheel drive drivetrain. The power of the engine gets sent to all four of the wheels and you are going to have fluid filled gears or differentials and advanced electronics. An option like the 2017 Dodge Durango will give you superior capability on wintry roads, or roads that are wet and slippery.
